Salam Alaykum WarahmatuLlāh Wabarakatuh…. Pls can we say Aamin and raised our arms when imam supplicate during Khutubah on friday?


Wa alaykum salam waramotullahi wabarakatu

Allahu Akbar!

Muslim narrated that Umarah bin Ruai’bah seen one of the leaders of bani umayyah raising his hands on the pulpit and he said,

May Allah disgrace those two hands. I seen the Prophet (ﷺ) on the pulpit and he never did more than this (meaning he raised his index finger).

Imam An-Nawawi also comments on this hadith in which it does not support raising hands because the authentic practises of the prophet pbuh is to point his index finger.

Allahu Akbar!
